people. today some leading experts are casting doubt on that notion, however. president obama meeting today with israeli prime minister netanyahu repeating his warning that syria would be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons, quote, or their transfer to terrorists. the stakes obviously cannot be higher for making the right call. joining us tonight is chief national correspondent john king who is traveling with president obama in israel. also fran townsend, former homeland security adviser in the bush 43 administration, currently on the advisory committee for the cia, and former cia officer bob baer. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no convulsions, no vomiting. at least three experts on chemical weapons say that judging from what they see here, it doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know,
perceptions. and it plans to rip a page from the obama play book by launching a complete revamp of digital technology. senior editor mark murray is here with more on what this means and what this does not mean, necessarily. what, first of all, what can we glean from this report about the direction that priebus now wants to take the gop? >> well, this is about a party trying to find its bearing after losing two straight presidential elections and not winning the popular vote in five out of the past six elections. one of the guide posts that priebus and the report lays out is to say, look, let's follow the pattern that republican governors across the country have been able to do. these governors are having a lot of successful there are 30 across the country. we follow their path and not the federal one, that is a better path to success. however, the one point is that a lot of those republican governors were all elected in 2009 and 2010 at a time when the unemployment rate was about 10%. since its gone down, the question is whether you could have that same type of success. >> now if first rea
the story and have more as we get it. >>> president obama wrapping up his visit to israel before heading to neighboring jordan. today he tours certain spots including tombs as well as the holocaust memorial museum and follows a visit to the west bank yesterday and a speech in jerusalem where he offered america's unflinching support to israel and calling for a renewed start to the middle east peace process. >> those who adhere to the ideology of existing of israel exist israel is not going anywhere. so long as there is a united states of america, [ speaking in foreign language ] you are not alone. the only way to truly protect the israel people over the long term is through the absence of war, because no wall is high enough and no iron dome is strong enough or perfect enough to stop every enemy that is intent on doing so from inflicting harm. just as israelis built a state in their home land, palestinians have right to be a state in their home land. i'm going off script a little bit. before i came here i met with a group of young palestinians from the age of 15 to 22. and talking to them,
jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and ivan, yesterday syrian state media claimed that opposition forces launched a chemical attack in aleppo province. killing at least two dozen people, injuring more than 100. the rebels deny that charge and t
